Abstract Soil samples were taken from 21 beef cattle feedlots in Georgia. Samples to 122 cm depth were taken upslope, within and approximately 30 and 90 m downslope from the lots. Soil samples were analyzed for extractable No2, NH4, P, K, Ca, Mg, and for electrical conductivity pH and organic matter. Soil nitrate was considerably less in the Georgia feedlots than in those in the more arid regions of the west and midwest. The average topsoil nitrate in feedlots was less than 20 ppm. Nutrients other than potassium did not show appreciable movement into the soil profile. It is concluded that pollution of ground water from beef cattle feedlots is probably not significant in Georgia.
